The 2020 UIL girls soccer season didn’t reach the ending teams wanted. The virus pandemic ultimately caused cancellation of the schedule in April with a handful of games remaining.
But Fulshear, Foster and George Ranch soccer stars were able to impress enough in the abbreviated season to earn spots on the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches all-region and all-state teams.
Coach Mark Kluppel’s Fulshear Chargers led the way with four selections after collecting the program’s second straight District 23-4A title.
Junior defender Amelia Hebert was named second-team all-state while junior defender Mikayla Counce earned honorable mention on the all-state team.
Counce had nine points including three goals and three assists.
Sophomore midfielder Ellie Mikeska and freshman forward Reagan Crawford were named to the first-team all-region team.
Mikeska had 55 points inducing 20 goals and 15 assists.
Crawford averaged nearly two goals per game, finishing with 38 total goals and 86 points.
Fulshear finished the regular season with a 20-4-1 record and was ranked number three in Region III-4A by TASCO.
Coach Sabrina Wilmot’s Foster Falcons also won their second-straight District 24-5A crown with a sparkling 14-0 record.
The Lady Falcons had three selections headlined by sophomore forward Angelica Bochus being named to the 5A all-state second team.
Bochus led District 24-5A with 82 points off 33 goals and 16 assists.
Senior goalkeeper Grace Shivers and senior defender Elise Cheramie were named to the all-region second team.
Shivers was a four-year starter for the Lady Falcons. She was in the net for a defense that allowed only five goals during district play over the past two seasons. Cheramie was the captain of the Lady Falcons’ defense that allowed only nine goals over 20 games during the season.
Foster finished with an 18-2 record overall and was number eight in the Region III-5A rankings from TASCO.
Coach Melissa Jimenez’s Longhorns were also represented in the season’s-end awards with senior goalkeeper Emilee Ulke named to the Region III-6A all-region first team.
Ukle, a University of Houston-Victoria commit, led District 23-6A with four shutouts. She allowed nine goals over nine games in net.
George Ranch finished with a 17-3-2 record overall and was second in District 23-6A when play stopped.
Elsewhere in Fort Bend, Ridge Point earned four selections with junior goalkeeper CJ Hellinger named to the first-team all-state list. Senior midfielder Sarah Gillespie (first team), junior midfielder Chayse Corfman (second team) and junior forward Cameryn Parsons (second team) received all-region nods.
